For reference I know very little of pickups, those would be humbuckers wouldn't they? What should I throw in this bad boy, it has really sweet vintagy tone with a bit of bite to it, I really dig it, very unique from what I've heard. But one of the pickups is blown and the other is heading in that direction. But new electronics and some new knobs and it will be looking/sounding nice. Weighs about as much as a train though.
